Ginger Peach Lemonade

Ginger Peach Lemonade

Sometime last year, I had a full-on obsession with ‘Ginger Peach’ following a really good meal at P.F. Chang’s where I had some (more like a whole pot and then some) Ginger Peach tea. I would scour the internet for the best price on Ginger Peach tea, then buy and drink to my heart’s content.

Ginger Peach Lemonade, however is a little different. Your tastebuds first feel the sugary sweetness of peaches first, and then suddenly feel a small, spicy kick from the ginger. This refreshing drink is so fun to drink!

Ginger and peach also pair quite well with lemons! Hence, Ginger Peach Lemonade is a sweet way to cool down during the hot summer days. Serve at parties, barbecues, picnics and al fresco dinners! Feel free to add some alcohol as well, if that’s your thing!

Ginger Peach Lemonade

Makes about 8 cups of lemonade.

Ingredients:

  • The juice of 2 lemons
  • 3 ripe peaches, diced
  • 1/8 cup coarsely chopped ginger, peeled
  • 1-2 cups water. Start with one, see if you like the consistency, then add another if you’d like.
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar

Directions:

Throw the lemon juice, peaches, and ginger into a blender and blend until you get a smoothie-like consistency. Add in the water and sugar and pulse again to keep the sweetness even. Feel free to add less or more sugar

If you want a more smoothie-like consistency, you can stop at this point and serve (which is what I did as evidenced by all the foam in the photo).

If you want a thinner, juice-like consistency, strain the lemonade through a fine mesh sieve and push the juice through with the back of a spoon. Discard the pulp, then serve and enjoy! You will have a little less juice, but that’s ok.

Ginger Peach LemonadeDo your best to drink the juice immediately for the best flavor and for the ultimate freshness. On hot days, serve with ice!
